Step-by-Step Instruction on How to Care for Your Pet
Pet care comes to life with the Hug 'n Heal Pet Doctor. Barbie's encouraging voice instructs your child on how to best care for his or her puppy step by step, including wiping its nose, listening to its heartbeat, and feeding it a bone. The adorable, plush brown-and-white beagle responds to touch, and the feeding accessories enhance the experience of pretend vet care.
Realistic, Audible Responses to Care
This puppy features interactive areas that respond to touch on the back, front paw, and head with noises that include sneezes, barks, whimpers, and panting. The puppy offers feeding and chewing noises when the feeding bottle or bone are held up to the puppy's mouth, and its nose changes from glowing red to black when wiped with a tissue.
Eight-Piece Doctor's Kit for Imaginative Play
Brightly colored accessories, including a cloth tissue, stethoscope, thermometer, syringe, feeding bottle, and bone encourage gentle nurturing of the pup. A prescription pad and birth certificate help to stimulate the imagination and inspire creative play.
The electronic puppy is powered by three "AAA" batteries (included). A switch on the power supply box located in the stomach of the puppy can be moved from "demo" to "on," or to "off" if the puppy will be out of use for extended periods of time.
Soft Carrying Case for Easy Portability
Everything included in the "Hug N' Heal" Pet Doctor kit fits neatly inside a soft, brightly colored dog carrier bag, including the pooch. The stylish bag features a top panel with a zipper closure and a clear plastic pouch with Velcro closures, so your child's pet can easily travel with him or her.
Our testers found that in addition to being an enjoyable interactive toy, the puppy is soft and cuddly enough for kids to curl up with at night.
